Toyota is undoubtably the technological leader in hybrid drive technology. Back in May, Toyota celebrated its 4 millionth hybrid sold. What's more, consumer sales have revealed that the Prius is the third-bestselling vehicle in the world.
Determined to convert even the most stubbornly conservative consumer to the wonders of new technology, Toyota has just released a clever ad that asks us the question: what if consumer technology continued to advance but the automotive industry stood still?
